The French President slammed his fist on the table while making the threat to tear to apart the EU last Friday at a crisis summit of euro zone leaders, diplomatic sources have confirmed.
The details of the row leaked out after Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, the Spain’s Prime Minister, recounted the summit’s events to members of his Socialist Party on Wednesday.
President Sarkozy, who is of Greek ancestry, demanded a “commitment from everyone to support Greece or France would reconsider its position in the euro,” according to one source.
